Partner Bio

In an effort to implement a system to streamline and modernize the State's plan review process, the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs' Division of Codes and Standards launched ePlans, a web-based electronic plan and document workflow solution that automates the plan submission, review and approval process through the use of digital files.  ePlans allows all stages of the review process to be transmitted electronically via the internet, thus eliminating paper-based building and code review processes and reducing the amount of time between plan submission and final approval.

IdenTrust has provided certificate that are authorized for use with the ePlan system and for digital signing and sealing.
